Oh, one more thing.
I don't buy PJ's "pods" theory.
Very wise, Mithadan! There's many PJisms I don't buy, but so long as movie tickets isn't one of them I guess New Line won't mind too much. Peter and bespectacled Weta guy whose name I can't remember often use the phrase "genetically engineered". This is a hot topic in New Zealand, and the world at the moment. Saruman using 'genetic engineering' is a very modern concept which I'm sure Tolkien wouldn't have had any inkling of, and is basically a tool to add some applicability to the modern world. Can't really blame them for that. The Island of Dr Moreau by H.G. Wells is pretty cool, and may be a bit more of an appropriate background to Tolkien's world.
But Gwindor answered: 'The doom lies in yourself, not in your name'.
